Todd Rundgren

Rock,Pop

Todd Rundgren is one of rock's true visionaries, experimenting with various media to fashion his pop masterpieces. After starting in the Philadelphia-area band Nazz in the mid-'60s ("Open My Eyes"), Rundgren took off as a star in the early '70s, with many hits, including "Hello, It's Me," "I Saw the Light" and a for-note replication of The Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations." He also started the band Utopia in the late '70s, and had three critically acclaimed albums with them in the early '80s. In recent years, he has performed both on his own (that included a mid-'90s tour during the lounge craze, where he played tiki versions of his hits) and with Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band, but he returned to the limelight in 2017 with the politically charged album "White Knight"; it which featured the single "Mr. Tin Foil Hat," co-written with and sung by Steely Dan's Donald Fagen.

Social Distortion

Punk,Rock

Social Distortion is a punk rock band formed in 1978 in California. Over the past 30-plus years, the punk godfathers in the band have all but trademarked their sound, a brand of hard rockabilly/punk that's cut with the melodic, road-tested lyrics of frontman Mike Ness.

Miranda Sings Live ... You're Welcome

Musical Comedy,Cabaret,Solo Performance

"Miranda Sings" is an internet character created by Colleen Ballinger. The character is a satire of increasingly common YouTube videos featuring mediocre or even bad singers who film themselves singing as a form of self-promotion. Miranda is supposedly from Tacoma, Washington, sings comically off-key, and, when confronted by viewers who take the videos seriously, uses the catchphrase, "Haters back off!" The characterization includes facial tics, unusually active eyebrows and a crooked smile. She also wears lipstick drawn beyond all natural borders and often dances stiffly to the music she is performing. Expect special guests, onstage voice lessons, fashion makeovers and dramatic readings of hate mail.

Lucinda Williams

Americana/Roots

Lucinda Williams may be the best roots- and blues-oriented songwriter working. Her songs have been covered by some of the most distinctive musicians of her generation, but she remains her own best interpreter. She exploded into public consciousness with her 1988 self-titled album, which was overflowing with songs everyone should hear at least once, including "Passionate Kisses," "Big Red Sun Blues," and the breakup anthem "Changed the Locks." Now in her 60s, she is selling out venues across North America and throughout Europe. Her Louisiana drawl gives her voice distinction. Her lyrics employ a pared-down vocabulary to tell stories in arrestingly original ways. Williams' writing has been influenced by the taste and example of her father, the poet Miller Williams, who died in 2015. She put one of his poems to music on her 2014 album, "Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone."
